Who We Are
Sasiani African Safaris is committed to providing you with an authentic Africa experience. We are passionate about reconnecting you with nature through our diverse collection of professional experienced based and personalised safaris and work with like minded in-country partners with the same objectives. Itineraries are designed with safety and comfort in mind, inspiring intrepid adventurers, budget conscious travellers and discerning travellers seeking comfort, relaxation and adventure in the African wilderness.
As a Conservation Advocate Sasiani progressively supports safari companies engaging Responsible and Visionary Practices as well as Environmental Sustainability through Conservation and Eco Tourism. We are fully committed to our guest’s experiences and the health of the environment they travel.
We do not inject money into glossy marketing merchandise rather we financially contribute to non-profit organisations that protect and support local communities, wildlife, vulnerable eco-systems and conservation initiatives in Africa as well as animal welfare and wildlife rescue organisations in Australia.
In essence we are about creating Unforgettable Memories and Travel Experiences that Educate and Positively Change the way Guests view Sustainable Travel and the Natural World. Ideally, we want our Guests to become Conservation Ambassadors and return to Africa.
‘Our Mission is to offer the Finest Personalised African Travel Service and Contribute Funding to Conservation Initiatives Dedicated to the Preservation of African and Australian Wildlife and Biomes’
Amazing journeys begin with a vibrant history and there is no exception for our Founder and General Manager, Caroline Berkeley, whose African legacy spans more than 100 years. As an international travel and networking expert, environmental scientist and dedicated naturalist Caroline has combined 30 years of business management and her passion for the natural world with some of Africa’s most Established Conservation Tourism and Ecotourism Safari Companies to create Sasiani African Safaris.
Caroline’s true passion for Africa’s wildlife, her people and natural world blossomed during a research placement in Kruger National Park, South Africa, many years ago. Throughout this time, she envisioned an African travel business with a difference; one that specialises in diversity, personalised service and reconnecting people with nature; making each experience unique as well as creating adventure opportunities for not only the travel enthusiast but also the physically disabled and anyone with a spirit for adventure. Subsequently, this experience was the seed that has been nurtured to become Sasiani African Safaris.
As a self-proclaimed adventurer some of Caroline’s escapade credits include; driving the vastness of Namibia’s deserts, cycling in the Kalahari, traversing Northern Botswana, walking amongst Africa’s iconic wildlife and participating in African rhino, elephant and ecology field research projects. Her travel adventures have taken her around the world, in addition to working in America, Australia, England, Scotland, Fiji, New Zealand, Samoa, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe.

What’s in the Name “Sasiani”
Sasiani African Safaris was proudly named after Caroline’s family farm near Eldoret in Kenya. Her grandfather, Ronald Berkeley, named the farm after the Sosiani River (with a slight spelling adjustment) that snakes through the heart of Eldoret giving life to the town. The name “Sasiani” perfectly depicts Ronald; he was a passionate and spirited adventurer, dedicated conservationist and advocate for the people. “Sasiani, is the perfect name”.
